Is shape is elegant with modern look, well better looking and complete major renovation in shape compare to all previous models.
Sound quality outstanding to its value range. Due to its upward firing large 3” woofer and dual 0.8” tweeters it delivers outstanding detailed sounds. Makes great sound quality , dynamic mids and clear highs on classic opera music and on heavy rap with powerful deep bass.
One of the most important parts it very responsive to voice, even while producing high volume music it can detect and responds to commands.
The other nice feature it can be pair with many other devices, such as other echo or Fire TV and helps create home cinema atmosphere.
For privacy it has mute button on top which stops all voice tracking functions.
It’s extremely easy to set up, if you already Alexa device holder it will auto connect , just plug to electric, no need to set up wifi, all done automatically. If first time user then it will step by step navigates how to activate it. Very clear and straight forward instructions.
It possible to link other account to it such:
- Apple Music,
-Audiable , broadcasts, radios etc.
It also has build in Zegbee smart home hub and also it’s own temperature sensor. Can be set up reminder , alarm day plan.
Generally fund to use, ask any questions and I get great knowledge answer , sometimes funny answers as well, builded with humour.
It has also 3.5mm audio line in/out. Volume control via voice or manually by pushing top “+” and “-“ buttons. Action command button and mute button. Size around 14.5cm wide and 13.5cm hight. In imperial it’s size 5”x5”x4.7” .
Connection 2.4 and 5ghz dual connection and advance Bluetooth connection.
-Power cord could be longer, it came with 1.45m which is around 57” long cable. Could be better if it was longer , it could give us opportunity to better position it.
- Currently only 3 colours available, could be better to have more bright light colourful colours as well for kids room.
Overall well done to Amazon, amazing music quality to its price range and grate shape and response. Definitely worth getting one or upgrading old one to this.
Have a look to my pictures , to compare to echo Plus 2nd generation. Hope this will be help to decide if it’s suitable for personal needs or not.
